Carved Teak Horse Corbel From Tamil Nadu - 18thC

This is a carved teak chariot panel from Tamil Nadu - South India. The chariots are decorated with carved teak images - mostly of religious significance. The chariots are enormous temples on wheels which are drawn through the streets by hundreds of people. They are called Ratha Yatra. In Orissa the Ratha Yatra carry an image of Krishna known locally as Lord Jaganath. This is the origin of the word Juggernaut which we use to describe large trucks.
